ISA Washington, DC, Trip Fall 2013

The UNCG international student group spent the weekend of October 12-15, 2013, in Washington, DC, an annual trip supported and organized by the IPC and International Student Association (ISA).

After a five-hour bus journey, the international student group arrived at the Rosslyn Holiday Inn, which is located just off the Potomac River. Despite the recent government shutdown, the students found numerous opportunities to explore Washington, DC, including guided tours of the city and visits to museums, shopping malls, and parks. Students especially enjoyed visiting the International Spy Museum, which houses the largest collection of international espionage artifacts ever placed on public display. In addition to its permanent collection, the museum was also holding a special exhibit, entitled “Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains.” Students were also excited to see the wax look-alikes of all 44 US presidents and Civil Rights leaders Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. at Madame Tussauds wax museum. Students also visited the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Easter Market, Ford’s Theater, and Crystal City Shops, an underground shopping mall in Arlington.

Each fall semester, IPC and ISA organize three cultural trips to Myrtle Beach, Washington, DC, and New York City. The students are looking forward to visiting New York City on November 27.

PAL program sponsors special Halloween Movie Night

On October 23, 2013, many international and domestic students gathered in the Sullivan Science Building auditorium for a special Halloween Movie Night, an event sponsored by the PAL (Peer Advisor and Liaison) program. Attendees munched on Halloween candy as they enjoyed a spooky double-feature, Hocus Pocus and World War Z. The movies shown were selected by the students via vote.

The Halloween Movie Night was held for the first time last year. Megan Stevens, one of the PAL Ambassadors who helped organize the movie night, hopes it will continue to be an annual event.
